Re: Synchronize Tags Fails On AAC

AAC files purchased from or ripped with iTunes are m4a, unless they're the old DRM-protected ones, which ar m4p.

Deeply Frustrating Album Tag Problem

Growing weary of the many problems I'm having with MM4, latest released version. My DB got corrupted and I stupidly did not have a recent backup. So I started a new one. When I add/rescan my 240,000 tracks, MM changes the album names to the track number for each track, thus turning a 10-track album ...

Database Problems

Been having a lot of discouraging problems with MM4 (latest version) the past many months. Randomly corrupting AAC and ALAC files, and enough other annoyances that I am considering abandoning it. I have 240K tracks on a 4TB external SSD. Running portable from that drive. Just started getting this er...

Re: MediaMonkey com elevator annoyance

...now I am wondering what I did. This must have been a setting in Windows 10 because now I don't see such a setting in MediaMonkey 4. Yep, there is a user account control setting that you can use to set the level of risk you are allowing to pass without a notification. Turning it down may well eli...

Re: Do you use Media Monkey? Why?

Bandcamp charges exactly the same for FLAC as for MP3. Not much there that really interests me, to be honest. I tend to be a little more mainstream in my purchasing tastes and stream the stuff from artists that I've never heard of. Also, I buy a fair amount of classical music, and they definitely c...

And I have to admit that i really can't tell the difference between 320 mp3 and a flac file when playing ... especially in a car.
Objective, double-blind studies have shown that many "audiophiles" can't either. Expectations color perception.

Re: Do you use Media Monkey? Why?

The future of digital audio is not in lossy formats like MP3. Among audiophiles, yes. Not so sure about the other 95+% of people. So long as lossless formats are sold at a much higher price that $1.29 per track, which is usually the case, the majority will not buy them. They have come to accept MP3...

Re: Do you use Media Monkey? Why?

I switched to it because iTunes chokes on large libraries. I have 250,000 tracks. I've been collecting CDs for 35 years.

(yes it will upload your FLAC file but it will then change it to MP3).
I assume you are referring to Google Play, because MediaMonkey certainly supports and plays FLAC. I have quite a few of them, to I mostly ripped to ALAC for compatibility with Apple devices.

Re: MM unable to recognize running itunes

It appears that if you download the Windows Store version, it is not seen in the control panel, but has to be deleted from the Settings window. It's the "tablet" version, and MM does not seem to recognize it. Apple has hidden the download of the desktop version a few clicks further into their websit...

[SOLVED] MM unable to recognize running itunes

Recently reinstalled iTunes to fix an iTunes Store glitch, which Apple now forces you to do from the Windows Store. Running latest version of MM4. Now it is unable to recognize that iTunes is install and running on my computer. When I plug mu iPhone in to sync with MM, pop-up says "An iPhone/iPod/iP...

Re: Auto-organize and copying files question

Sounds like it'll work, then: copies of my files to a new location, my library stays the same. Thanks! Actually, that may not quite be the case. I'm not sure, but your MM database might think that the tracks you used Auto-Organize to copy to a drive that you will be giving to a friend are now found...

"why can't I add folders to MM".
In many years of using MM, I've never once had File>add/rescan files to the library fail to add those files to my library. Then I use Auto-Organize Files to put the folders containing those tracks where I want them. Works every time.

Re: a religious thing???

Perhaps rather than wasting time thinking of creative ways to insult the developers of MM, you should use that time to learn how to use the software. It is easy to turn off crossfade playback, though I have had occasion when it seemed to come back on spontaneously. If it does, I just turn it off aga...

Re: Greyed tracks after changing file path slightly

Naturally, MM will be unable to find tracks if you change the path, even in the slightest, outside of MM. Select the files you want MM to find and use File-->Locate Moved/Missing FIles. If you ever need to change the path again, use Tools-->Auto-Organize Files, where you can choose new paths. Instru...
